Hershey Kiss Cookies

Kisses anyone?

This recipe isn't quite as easy as the peanut butter cup ones...
but it is by no means difficult!
The only thing that I discovered that I did wrong was making the cookie part too big.
I ended up having a lot of kisses left over.
So I ended up making another 1/2 batch.
The directions said it would make 48 cookies....
and there are 48 kisses in a bag.
So..make sure you keep the cookie part of the cookie on the smaller end.
(my mini scooper was too big...can you believe that!)

Hershey Kiss Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 375*

Beat shortening and peanut butter until well blended.
Add sugars and beat until fluffy.
Add egg, milk and vanilla and mix well.
Slowly add flour, baking soda and salt.
Mix all ingredients until combined.
Make dough into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar.
Place on cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

Once out of the oven, press chocolate kiss into the center of each cookie.
They will ALL crack...don't worry about it!
Allow to cool a bit and then move them to a cooling rack.


  1. one of my favorites too! thank you for sharing!

  2. I've made these cookies before, BUT a girl I work with told me to use a small muffin tin and your cookies will look like Martha Stewart made them-absolutely perfect!


Does it look good? Did you try it? Do tell!
